According to the weather reports for tomorrow, we are going to have a very wet, rainy Halloween. Mr. Keer has put together an indoor parade route for us to follow. Please see the post below and the attached map. We hope to see you there. Thank you.
We are going to play the mystery book report hunt on Monday instead of today. Some students did not complete the assignment and I told them they can add more clues to the boxes over the weekend. Please remind your child that there should be clues both inside and out of the box. Thank you so much for your support.
We have had another wonderful week in 3-S. The students are working hard and have mastered all classroom routines.
We continue to practice multiplication. The students learned a new game call Red Racers. During this game, students are practicing the strategy of multiplying 1 digit x 10 and 100. Next week, we will be introduced to double digit x 1 digit. Please continue to practice the basic math facts at home through flashcards or websites on my blog.
We are studying and interpreting a variety of fables. Students have learned the characteristics of a fable and are practicing identifying the theme and morals. Next week, the students will be writing their own fables.
We are finished writing our personal narratives. We are going to write our own fables next week.
This week we read non-fiction text on the Solar System and planets. They students found facts and created group posters that they will present to each other next week.
Reminders- Next Thursday is Halloween. Please have your child bring their costume in a backpack or bag. They will change in the afternoon. The parade is at 2:45 on the school black top. We hope to see you there.
Have a great weekend!
Indian Trail Fall Coat & Boot Drive
Fall is the time of year to clean out our closets, and during the month of October, we are holding a community-wide winter coat & boot collection. Due to the growing need in our community, we are collecting new and gently-used, warm, clean coats and boots of all sizes from infant to adult. The items will be distributed to families in need within our community in early November.
Please drop off your donations in the Fall Coat & Boot Drive box outside of the Indian Trail main office from October 14th – October 28th.
Thank you for your generosity!
If you have any questions about the coat drive, please contact Shirley Harwood at email@example.com
This week we had 2 author visits. On Monday, we met the Klise sisters. They shared with us how they came up with the ideas for their books and how they work together as a team. On Thursday, we met Ann Hood, author of The Treasure Chest series. She shared that her ideas came from visiting old mansions and researching famous people from history.
We continue to learn the multiplication facts and using these facts in our problem solving. The students have learned and continue to work with equal groups, repeated addition and arrays.
The students continue to work in their reading groups. They are reading and discussing various mystery novels. In addition to the book groups, students have been practicing identifying and restating the main idea and theme in a non-fiction and fiction text. Also, students are finishing up their 3 paragraph personal narratives. You can see these docs in their email and we will also have a book at conferences. In grammar, we are focusing on singular and plural pronouns.
Science and Social Studies
We are taking a break from science this week and focusing on social studies. This week we are talking about the different natural resources, climate and physical geography of a variety of places around the U.S.
Please let me know as soon as possible if your date and time do not work. Otherwise, looking forward to meeting with you!
